St. James vigil ends after 7+ years

St James The Great Church Wellesley 2012St. James the Great parishioners have ended their vigil, which started at the Wellesley church in 2004 after the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Boston started shuttering churches so that it could pay costs associated with its many abuse cases.

The Vatican asked the parish to end its vigil, as the St. James awaits results of what it likely its final appeal. Meanwhile, the town of Wellesley has approved a $3.8M  purchase of the church and surrounding property, which will be converted into a recreation area featuring a pool, swimming pool and playing fields if all appeals are exhausted.

More details from the Boston Globe and Townsman.
